Welcome to 3 Jupiter
Welcome to the spring term. We hope that your child is looking forward to another term of great learning.
In English, we will be reading some quest myths in preparation for planning and writing our own ones. In guided reading, we will study the wonderful Philip Pullman novel ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ in which the main character sets off on a quest. After half term, we will focus on play scripts, and the book ‘Where The Wild Things Are’, by Eric Sendak which creates a wealth of opportunities for drama, role-play and diary writing.
In Maths, we will be furthering our understanding of addition and subtraction through regrouping and applying inverse to solve problems. We will have a real drive
In History, we will study the Romans in Britain. We will look at the reasons for the expansion of the Roman empire and how the Romans managed to keep control over such a vast area. We will also study interpretations of Boudica (Boudicca), the differences between Celtic and Roman lifestyles in town and country, the Roman legacy and finally look at why the mighty Roman empire came to an end.
